  • Kylie, Kim Kardashian West, and Khloe Kardashian all condemned the YouTuber for messing with Kylie and Scott’s relationship.

Remember that viral photo from earlier this week said to show Travis Scott cheating on Kylie Jenner? It’s fake.

The picture was created as a stunt from YouTuber ChristianAdamG, who wanted to go viral and fool media organisations. But Kylie, Kim Kardashian West, and Khloe Kardashian aren’t amused.

Kylie scolded the YouTuber, saying his stunt was messing with her relationship.

“Idk if this is really a social experiment to some people but you’re messing with real people, real relationships, real family,” she wrote on an Instagram story. “I’m happy my relationship is strong because this is getting out of hand. The internet scares me sometimes for real.”

Kim and Khloe also condemned the YouTuber, pointing out how damaging the stunt could have been.

“This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!” Kim wrote.

In his video explaining the stunt, ChristianAdamG said he was inspired by the fake photo of Justin Bieber eating a burrito sideways, which YouTube group Yes Theory created earlier this year. He said he went to elaborate lengths for his stunt, dying his hair, taking more than 700 photos, and putting a fake TMZ watermark on the photo to make it seem more authentic.

ChristianAdamG highlighted Scott’s reply that the fake photo was “evil” and trying to “destroy real love.” He said he gave Scott a “free pass” for cheating.

“I bet you the next time he cheats, nobody going to believe it if he actually cheats,” he said. “So I just gave him a free pass. My boy.”

In the video’s description, the YouTuber left a disclaimer that “this video was NOT made to intentionally hurt Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner or the entire Kardashian family in ANY way shape or form.”

Kylie’s fans found that stance ludicrous and criticised him on Twitter.

As ChristianAdamG said in his video, only a handful of media organisations accepted the photo at face value, and the vast majority of publications published Scott’s denial instead.
